Earth science week is a week dedicated to the importance of the Earth and brings realization to the fact that the Earth is all around us. It is also to engage students in exploring Earth sciences. This year Earth Science week is celebrating ‘Earth as Inspiration.”
If you’re not one to participate in a contest then you can participate in other ways, such as teaching the importance of Earth sciences to someone who may not know about them or even joining Morningside’s SEA organization. SEA is an on-campus organization that focuses on the sustainability of the environment. They meet every Tuesday at 6 pm in the Hickman Room to discuss the progress of their projects and much more.
